Shopoholics Daily blogged out my Chocolate Bar Soap on their Wednesday’s Bath Goodies list. Thanks Guys!
At Maker Faire I will have oval, round, rectangle, floral patterned and bees & honeycomb molds for people to use to create their own soap. I will also be bringing a box of toys, glitter and fragrances so you can make your soap look and have whatever you desire in it!
Here’s a fun cow soap I made with blue colorant, gold glitter and fresh rain fragrance in an oval mold.
I’ve made the decision on what 10 colors to bring with me at Maker Faire. The soap you create can be yellow, pink, red, orange, green, sea foam green, neon lime, blue, tan, or purple!

Happy New Year Y’all! I’m celebrating in Philly but will be back in Houston on the 2nd!
I will be back at the Midtown Farmers Market with my Make Your Own Soap Booth on Saturday, January, 3rd from 8am – Noon. For only $5 to cover materials, you can create a custom bar of soap with the scent, color, glitter and toy you pick out. I’ll have butterflies, ballerinas, lizards, puppies & farm animals at the very least. You can also bring your own waterproof object to embed in the soap. The object needs to be less than 2.25 inches wide, 3 inches tall, .75 inches deep to fit into the mold. After you pour the soap, you need about 20 minutes for it to set, and you can use it later that day, if you like!
I’ll have handmade soap, lotion, perfume & lip balm at my booth. Come and see locally created cards, jewelery, clothing & pottery.
The Midtown Farmers Market is located in the front of Monica Pope’s T’afia next door to the Breakfast Klub. 3701 Travis Street @ W. Alabama
